Phillip Schofield says he 'hasn't even discussed' divorce from wife Steph 8 months after coming out as gay

PHILLIP Schofield said he "hasn't even discussed" divorce from wife Stephanie Lowee eight months after coming out as gay.

The This Morning presenter, 58, came out during an emotional interview in February after nearly 27 years of marriage.

However, Phillip said he has not spoken to Steph about getting a divorce.

"We're picking our way through. It's a work in progress," he told The Mirror.

He added: "I'm still married to Steph. With divorce… we've not discussed that at all."

Phillip opened up last week about being "unsure" of his future.

Speaking on Radio 4's Saturday Morning Live to discuss his autobiography Life's What You Make It, he said: "The future looks unsure. It's a work in progress.

"I don't actually know to be honest. I'm living every day as it comes.

"We all love each other and see each other. As a family we will take that forward."

The host originally came out in an emotional interview with his best friend and co-presenter Holly Willoughby in February.

But the star has admitted to being "still confused" and that he "doesn't know who he is".

During a recent chat with Fearne Cotton on her Happy Place podcast, Phillip spoke out about how he's been feeling since coming out as gay and how things have changed for him.

The telly favourite told the former Radio 1 presenter: "I'm still learning what effects that has on my life and those around me."

He also questioned if he truly knows who he is.

Phillip told Fearne: "Do I know who I am? No. I think if I'm honest, looking you right in the eye now, I'd say I'm still pretty confused."

The star also feels that although he has "no shame" in who is he, it has hurt those closest to him.

He told host Fearne: "I'm happy with who I am, I'm not happy with the damage it causes."

Phillip went on to say that he doesn't want to cause anymore heartache for his daughters Ruby, 24, Molly, 27, and wife Steph and they are all trying their best to move forward.

He added: "I know that I don't want to hurt anyone anymore than I've already hurt them, but I also know that we are, us four, the same but different, and we're finding our way."
